What is an Arm Lift in Turkey?
Arm Lift surgery in Turkey is a precise procedure commonly performed to tighten and lift the loose skin of the upper arms, also medically referred to as Brachioplasty. The underarm is tightened and smoothed and any excess fat is removed leaving your arms looking younger and more toned. There can be many reasons for wanting to have an Arm Lift carried out, whether you have an excess build-up of fat deposits on your upper arms that you would like to reduce and tone, or if you have excessive sagging skin in this area you want to tighten. Sagging skin can sometimes be the result of rapid weight loss that leaves the overstretched skin in place, or as a result of the ageing process where the skin loses its elasticity over time. The benefits of Arm Lift surgery in Turkey include:
- Smooth, toned upper arms
- A more youthful appearance
- Immediately noticeable results after surgery
- Full desired aesthetic in 3-4 weeks
- Expert medical care and 5-star accommodation
- Arm Lift cost in Turkey is much lower & affordable than in the UK

Who Is Suitable For Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey?
All patients who are looking at an Arm Lift in Turkey will need to undergo a full consultation first. The final decision on your suitability will come down to our surgeons who will be potentially performing the procedure. If they feel there is enough to warrant Arm Lift surgery in Turkey, they will be happy to recommend you. You are suitable for an Arm Lift if you:

Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey – Risks
Like with any cosmetic surgery, there are various risks to consider before choosing our affordable Arm Lift cost in Turkey or undergoing this type of treatment in the UK. The risks involved in the procedure can include pain and discomfort, excessive bleeding, permanent scarring as well as nerve, muscle, or blood vessel damage and more. It’s always a good idea to consider both the benefits and risks before proceeding with any type of surgery. Other risks include:
- Incision scars from your Arm Lift in Turkey are permanent but are usually carried out in areas that aren’t easily visible. Rarely, the incisions made can result in raised, red scars. However, you can improve the appearance of scars with corticosteroid injections or other treatments.
- Skin sensitivity. During the arm lift, the repositioning of your arm tissues can affect superficial sensory nerves meaning you may feel some temporary numbness.
- Asymmetry in the shape of your arms. During the changes of the healing process, asymmetry could occur which could affect the symmetry of your arms. It’s also important to note that while the surgeon will try and make your arms as symmetrical as possible, perfect symmetry isn’t always possible.
- Problems with stitches. Stitches are used to secure the arm’s new shape. Rarely, the stitches may work their way to the surface of the skin where they will need to be removed. This can, therefore, cause inflammation of the skin and you may need additional surgery.
After your surgery, side some side effects are normal, however, if you experience any of the following side effects, contact your doctor immediately:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pains
- Irregular heartbeat
- Redness of the skin and a fever
How to Prepare For Your Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will likely review your medical history, so be prepared to answer questions about ongoing and past medical conditions including any medications you’re taking or have taken. Your surgeon will also carry out a physical exam to determine your treatment options and they will also review the undersides of your arms. Expectations will also be discussed in your consultation including how you expect the appearance to look, your expectations of the surgery, recovery, scarring and any risks.
Before your surgery, you will be advised to quit smoking as this decreases the blood flow in the skin and can therefore slow down the healing process. You will also be advised not to smoke during recovery. Your surgeon will advise you on any medications to stop taking (such as aspirin and any anti-inflammatory drugs and supplements). You will also need to arrange for help during your recovery such as someone to drive you home after your surgery and stay with you as you recover.
Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey – Procedure
The duration of Arm Lift surgery in Turkey is approximately 3 hours, and during this time general anaesthesia will be used. The areas of your upper arms will be marked by the surgeon for where the incisions will be made, usually on the back and sides of your upper arm. This can also be approached from the armpit or the top of your elbow, but your surgeon will determine the best method for you.
Your upper arms will then be tightened, and the tissue reshaped before the skin is then stitched back in place. If you have excess fat, this will be removed through liposuction before the wounds are stitched also.
Arm Lift in Turkey – Recovery & Results
After your Arm Lift in Turkey, your arms will be covered in bandages and small tubes may be placed in your arms to drain any excess blood and fluid. A surgeon will remove these after a few days.
Patients undergoing an Arm Lift in Turkey can expect to be able to resume daily activities and routine within a fortnight of the surgery. Swelling from the arm lift surgery will begin to fade out and completely diminish within a week of the procedure. Patients will notice an immediate change in appearance, however, a further 3-4 week period is when optimum results will be seen. Patients will experience further improvements during this time with their arm’s overall appearance, providing the desired aesthetic. In the first few days and weeks after an arm lift you must:
- Avoid lifting your arms above shoulder level for three to four weeks
- Avoid any physical or athletic activities that include your arms for four to eight weeks as this may stretch incisions after surgery
- Take pain medication as and when needed and use topical or antibiotics as directed to prevent infections in the wound
The results of an Arm Lift in Turkey will vary between individual patients depending on the amount of excess fat and sagging skin needing to be removed. Your surgeon will be able to talk you through the procedure that is bespoke to your requirements and answer any questions you may have before proceeding.
Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey – Aftercare
After you have had the Arm Lift surgery, the doctors at Vera Clinic will prescribe medication to you to aid your recovery.
